Leo Must Have:
- Someone who is home most of the time and another active, playful dog around his age that isn’t too big and can show him the ropes. Kids over the age of 7 would be fine.
- Have had dogs as an adult
- Recent/current dog experience a plus!
My name is Lovable Leo and my BFK Aunties want me to introduce myself because I’m a pretty spectacular pup. Now I’m absolutely not bragging (I would never, ever do that) however everyone that meets me says so!
My foster Mom and Dad will tell you that I’m a very handsome and loving mix of either a Bichon and a Doodle or perhaps a Bichon and Cocker Spaniel. Whatever I am, I have silky hair (and a very inquisitive look about me). Mom says I have the softest coat ever and when I cuddle with her it’s like having the coziest blanket wrapped around you. Dad says I’m a character and that I sleep in the oddest positions on the couch or in my bed. Mom and Dad laugh when they see me and wonder how I can be comfortable (but I really am!)
Did I mention that I’m about three years old and cuddle sized at 17 pounds? I’m loyal, attentive, communicative and smart (more on that in a minute) — and eager to please. Although I’m shy initially (please take it slow at first) I’m GREAT with people and children once I get to know them. And I love other dogs, especially ones about my size! I get so excited to see other pups and can’t wait to “engage.”
I absolutely LOVE my walks. When the harness comes out, I’m ready to explore the great outdoors! I’m an excellent walker and stay right by your side on the leash. Long walks are the best, short walks are fine and meeting new canine friends is a treat. Dad has also taken me with him when he runs. I like running as well as walking. And then there’s riding in the car! I love to ride in the car and am a great passenger. I’m also willing to be a co-pilot if you need one.
Besides loving my walks, another of my favorite things in the whole world is to cuddle and hang out -—or take a nap —or play in the yard—or “help” Mom and Dad work. Dad says I’m a great influence! And Mom says I’m happiest when I can be close by!
Now about communication — Mom says I love to communicate. I have a series of cute small barks to let you know I either want something or am excited about something. When I want you to play tug-of-war with my rope, for example, I’ll let you know. After all, I’m a young pup so I’m very playful. I definitely enjoy chewing my stuffed toys.
As for being smart– I mastered the stairs and doggy door very quickly and have already learned several commands. My favorite one is ‘sit’ because I know I’m going to get a treat. Dad says sometimes I sit to let him know that I’m waiting (for a treat, that is, in case he might have one handy.)
Mom and Dad agree that I’m handsome, sweet, attentive, playful and intelligent (Gee, thanks!). I like learning commands — and want to learn more. Want to teach me? I’m a very good student.
After a long day of playing, studying, learning and reading (well I do help Mom and Dad when they are reading!), I sleep quietly all night long, about the most content FurKid you could ever meet.
So if you are looking for a new best friend and are around most of the time, and you have kids for me to play with and love, and maybe another furkid or two, please ask for me as I’m looking for my forever family!
Cuddles and tail wags,
Loveable, Likeable and Loyal Leo
